For those who aren’t aware, the LA Marathon is this Sunday, March 18. The LA Marathon is a little over 26 miles and runs (pun, intended) between Downtown LA’s Dodger Stadium through Chinatown, Olvera Street, Little Tokyo, Bunker Hill, Angeleno Heights, Echo Park, Silverlake, Los Feliz, Little Armenia, Thai Town, Hollywood, The Sunset Strip, West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Century City, Westwood, Brentwood and finishes in Santa Monica. What does all this mean for most Angelenos? It means that for most of Sunday all the TV stations will be occupied with coverage of the runners and traffic is going to be a shitshow.
With this in mind, we’ve compiled a few things to do this weekend around Los Angeles that don’t involve spandex and sweat:
Last year at Incognito
Yarn Bombing Los Angeles strikes again!
CHEVIOT HILLS: Fans of food coloring and beer will also be quick to remind us of another important event happening this Saturday: St. Patrick’s Day! Irish pubs across the world will be jam packed but one of our all time favorites is a locals only kinda bar called The Irish Times. On St. Patrick’s day they open promptly at 9am, have three Irish bands, a bagpiper, two beer bars and will be serving up all the Irish essentials: Fish & Chips, Beef Stew, and Corned Beef. Erin go Bragh!
HIGHLAND PARK: When people visited Highland Park in the past they found a bunch of auto-body shops and taco stands (not that that’s a bad thing). Revitalization has since hit this neighborhood on the North-East side of Los Angeles and the end result is nothing more than adorable. A recent article in the LA Times has just named a whole bunch of check-out worthy shops, stores, and eateries along Highland Park’s York Boulevard. Our favorites include the design store, Matters of Space and the restaurant Maximiliano. Click here to read the whole article.
Matters of Space
Have a great weekend!!
